Call it what it is: amnesty

Michelle Malkin’s latest roundup on the Republican Senate’s immigration wuss-a-palooza says it all. I also like this handy visual retort to the open borders crowd: © 2005 Jay D. Dyson(click image to enlarge) As I said yesterday, build a wall first and deal with the rest later. I’ll let Michelle rip the amnesty deal for […]

Painting Ohio’s 13th District a nice deep red

Tell Hugh Hewitt I did my duty. I gave a copy of this … … to Congressional candidate Paul Burtzlaff last night. He’s running for the open seat in Ohio’s 13th Congressional District, which was vacated this year by Sherrod Brown. A conservative Republican, Burtzlaff is a former Navy chaplain who’s now a Lutheran pastor […]

Just bought my copy of “Painting The Map Red”

I’ll be reading Hugh Hewitt’s newest book today: So far, so good!

Any questions for Jim Petro?

I intend to be there when the gang from Meet The Bloggers sits down with Jim Petro on Thursday. What questions would you like me to ask him? Update: one very nasty cold put the brakes on my ambitions. Oh well.

Armstrong Williams fallout continues

Thanks to conservative pundit Armstrong Williams (who secretly took $250,000 from the Bush administration to hawk the No Child Left Behind Act, and claimed that others did too), minority conservative pundits are catching major hate from the venomous wing of the loony Left. Not that the lefties were sweet and kind before, mind you, but […]

Armstrong Williams payola

I’ve been thinking about how to express my disapproval of conservative commentator Armstrong Williams, who recently admitted taking money from the Bush Administration to become a booster for the No Child Left Behind Act. But now I don’t need to worry about finding the words. They turned up on Michelle Malkin’s blog because she thought […]

Attention, Ohio GOP: your bus may be leaving

The outgoing Republican president of Colorado’s Senate digs through the entrails of the Democrat election victory there and identifies some themes that look eerily familiar to Ohio conservatives. It was motivation, above all, that powered this Democrat victory. Democrats were driven and hungry from decades in the political wilderness. Republicans were complacent and soft from […]

Fishing for liberals

In an article just published by The Sentinel (a conservative publication at Ohio State University), conservative student columnist Stephen Dronen relates his encounter with volunteers conducting a Democrat voter registration drive … and his resulting experiment in liberal-baiting. I took to the streets to see if my appearance had any bearing on their action. First […]

Now we’s gonna git them libruls

Aw, shucks. Here we’ve gone ‘n won the ‘lection, and somebody done already let the cat outta the bag. Cain’t nobody keep secrets no more?

My wish list for the next four years

Now that we’ve won the election, it’s time to capitalize. I offer three lists as starting points for thinking about what to do next. Here’s my off-the-cuff list of top political priorities that President Bush and the Republican Congress ought to pursue between now and 2008. Redouble the war effort. It’s no quagmire. We have […]

Brief update from the trenches

Today I attended a three-hour training session for Republican election observers in NE Ohio. We hailed from Cuyahoga, Lorain, and Erie Counties (see map), and this was just one of three training sessions taking place today in NE Ohio alone. Although I won’t reveal any strategy or data that Democrats might find useful, I do […]

The Ant and The Grasshopper

Just got this in the ol’ e-mail inbox. It’s a well-circulated retelling of an old fable, but it’s still funny. — Classic version: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building His house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he’s a fool and laughs and dances and […]

Who better to expose Kerry than another Democrat?

Zell Miller uncorked a 55-gallon drum of whupass on John Kerry in his keynote speech at the Republican Convention tonight. He didn’t wait for applause, he didn’t smile, he didn’t joke. He looked and spoke like a man on a mission, animated by cold determination to protect his family. A few key nuggets from a […]

How to embarrass the TV networks

I keep hearing rumblings about the major TV networks deciding not to cover the Republican National Convention tonight. It’s opening night, for goodness’ sake. If this is true, it really puts the networks’ bias on display (especially after they refused to cover the SwiftVets controversy for days). If I were running the RNC, I’d be […]

Whistling past the graveyard?

A journalism professor from Harvard’s Kennedy School wrote an editorial yesterday in the factually-challenged L.A. Times. The piece makes some accurate observations on the different roles of mainstream media vs. blogs, but also takes potshots at the typical blogger as a “blustering know-it-all in a bar.” We’ll see.
